After escaping from the police station, Amy Rose and Tekno the Canary noticed that a private eye detective was being harassed by two gangsters. One of them, Al, pinned the hero against the wall, stating this his "boss" didn't take kindly to those who try to bring him down. His friend proposed that the detective required more "convincing", suggesting that Al should resort to violence. However, Al's colleague was punched by Amy, sending them both running.
Although Al wasn't seen again, he ceased to exist when Amy realised the planet's physics and wished up a superhero team to defeat Al and his cronies. Once Gamble's head began to hurt too much, all of his creations disappeared.
